Original Air Date: May 2018
I am seriously bursting to share this latest video interview with you. Darla Antoine came to me a few months back identifying as both a First Nations Okanagan Tribal Member and as a descendant of Celtic ancestors, offering up her expertise in ancestral healing work through food and a sense of place. Being a woman of European ancestry with the same passions, I knew Darla would have so much to share in ways I could never possibly see or experience, so I was thrilled to hop on a call with her and listen alongside you.
I invited Darla to share her powerful origin story and her experience of being descended from both an oppressed culture and that of the oppressor (she is literally descended from known Indian killer Kit Carson).Together, we wove through a conversation about humanity’s deep craving to belong, what it means to take part in cultural reparations, her grief over being the end of her lineage, how she connects with her ancestors over food, and so much more. This conversation is juicy!
